Donald Harrison is being called one of the most important musicians of the new millennium by CBS Sunday Morning. A list of his accomplishments shows that he has developed into a musical category unto himself. In the classic jazz genre, he is the originator of the Nouveau Swing style which merges acoustic swing with modern R&B, second-line, hip-hop, Mardi Gras Indian and reggae rhythms.

Harrison will be joined by pianist extraordinaire Willie Pickens. In the early 1960s, Pickens played on saxophonist Eddie Harris' first four recordings for Vee-Jay Records. His period with Harris lasted between 1960 and 1966.Pickens taught music at public schools from 1966 until 1990.He was also a faculty member of the American Conservatory of Music between 1971 and 1987. Pickens recorded with clarinetist Buddy DeFranco in 1977, and drummer Louis Bellson in 1994.Pickens played in drummer Elvin Jones' band between 1990 and 1997, including internationally. He has taught at Northern Illinois University's School of Music since 1997.
